Nope, it's a complete **** up. My easy-out broke off in the hole. Tried cutting slots but no use, welded some 20 bolts to it but they just twist off and if anything has made it worse. So I don't think I have any alternative at this stage but to take it all apart, split the case and try and attack it from the inside :cry:
Post a picture of what you have .You can also try knocking the easy out from side to side using a small centre punch to loosen it.A die grinder with a small stone might remove the easy out .Sounds like work but rebuilding the engine may actually be quicker and less risk of doing damage ,especially if you try and drill it while the case is still together.Downside to dissmantling is you could end up replacing more stuff unless the engine is very low mileage.
I know this kind of thing can be frustrating but keep your spirits up 😎
Personally if its really stuck i would just get on a strip it .A couple of hours and it will be in pieces .you could then try with a small punch to knock out the easyout from behind,but unless you have a large drilling machine or acces to a milling machine dont try and drill it yourself.the case needs to be clamped rigid ,Take it to a machine shop as they will be used to this kind of thing .
